Louisville Roundup

"Critics Weekend" has come and gone at the Actors Theater of Louisville Humana Festival, so here come the reviews:

Isherwood: Liked "Becky Shaw" ("a thoroughly enjoyable play, suspenseful, witty and infused with an unsettling sense of the potential for psychic disaster inherent in almost any close relationship"); liked Civilians' This Beautiful City; didn't like Lee Blessing's latest (a solid but sleep two-hander, and left similarly cold by Jennifer Haley's video-game inspired "“Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom” ("this material ill suits the stage"), the break/s written and performed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and Carly Mensch's All Hail Hurricane Gordo.

Still awaiting other major critics, but here's two other perspectives: Bloomberg's Philip Boroff and Denver Post's John Moore (with lots of pics!).
